For those of you who aren't familiar with SuperStarch and/or UCAN, the short explanation is that it is a fuel that your body slowly burns in order to keep your blood sugar levels consistent while you are running/working out. I like the powder form because I don't have to continuously refuel during my longer (8-10+ miles). It's a weird thing to get used to, but it does work.
The Snack Bars are designed to be consumed before physical activity or just during every day times when you're trying to tie yourself over between meals and curb your hunger.
It's too bad, because like I mentioned earlier, I love their SuperStarch powder. I think the technology and science behind it are excellent and have recommended it to many. However, the mark was missed with the bars. I think with some re-engineering, these bars can be adjusted and improved. Unfortunately, this product doesn't earn my stamp of approval. Again, I would encourage you to try to their regular powder in the mean time.
